Arthur Masuaku: I just want to keep going like this
Arthur Masuaku brought up a century of games for West Ham United in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Manchester City and immediately set his sights on the next hundred.
The 26-year-old is enjoying a fine run of form at the start of the 2020/21 campaign, earning his place at left-wing back and showcasing his abilities at both ends of the pitch.
Four years after making the move to the Premier League from Greek side Olympiacos, Masuaku is feeling at home in east London and wants to go on to even greater heights with the Hammers.
He says the recent results, not just against the Citizens, but victories over Wolves and Leicester, plus that incredible comeback draw at Tottenham, points to a mentality shift in the team, and that they can go on to achieve great things together.
I do think we have a different mentality now. I can feel it. Last year I think we'd have lost this game, we didn't on Saturday and I'm glad
"I'm happy to reach 100 games for West Ham," he smiled. "Hopefully there's many more to come - I'm enjoying my time at the Club and I just want to keep going and playing for West Ham.
"I tried to do my job as much as I can to help the team. We didn't lose, it's a good point for us. We're in a good moment and hopefully we can keep it going against Liverpool next week.
"I do think we have a different mentality now. I can feel it. Last year I think we'd have lost this game, we didn't on Saturday and I'm glad.
"We have to keep going with this mentality to be hard to beat, and to win games."
Forty of Masuaku's 100 Hammers appearances have come under the management of David Moyes and Masuaku says he feeds off the confidence the boss gives him.
With a trip to Liverpool next up for the Hammers, he just wants to keep rolling.
"He's a good manager," the DR Congo international added, "With me he talks a lot, he told me after the game how good I was and he says good things.
"That's very good when you know the manager likes you. I'm just trying to play my game and give the trust back.
"At this moment I'm playing, I just try to keep my place in the team and hopefully help the team as much as I can."
